The eastern city of Taitung has hosted the last in a series of regional forums on the issue of pension
The Presidential Office’s pension reform committee organized four forums, one each in Taiwan’s northern, central, southern, and eastern regions to gather local opinions on shoring up Taiwan’s deficit-ridden pension system.
A national meeting on pension reform is now planned for January 21 and 22. The meeting will take the views heard at each of the regional meetings into consideration. Government agencies will then take the recommendations of the national meeting and use them in preparing draft legislation on pension reform. [FULL STORY]
